We here at The Frisky are really into music and reading. Sometimes ours tastes are, um, awesome and we want to share them with you. Sometimes our tastes are terrible (ahem, Sophie Kinsella books and Ashlee Simpson singles), so we’ll probably keep those to ourselves. But after the jump, Emily, Simcha, Catherine, and myself share the cool stuff we’re into this month. Keep reading »
Well, it was bound to happen. A U.K. sex toy company is releasing a limit edition of the rabbit (you know, the vibrator Charlotte falls in love with) called “Mr. Big” in honor of the May 30th release of Sex and the City: The Movie. [Shine] Keep reading »
Some people may say that Viggo Mortensen, who’s known for his roles in those boring Lord Of The Rings movies and for being director David Cronenberg’s male muse, gets a lot of crap for his facial hair choices. Even though I picked a photo of him where he is clean shaven, I admire his ability to rock the Fu Manchu and General Custer-inspired facial fuzz. I also really admired his penis’s appearance in Eastern Promises, the real reason he’s eternally hot. Keep reading »
A Gawker tipster informs the website that if you go to your Facebook page, click on the search field, and then hit the down arrow key, a list of five people with appear. Who are those five people? So far, most people seem to be speculating that they are either the five people you search for/click on the most, the five people who search for/click on you the most, or the five most recent people you’ve clicked on. I tested the final theory by clicking on someone not in my five, but my list still didn’t change. That said, I kind of don’t want to believe that the people most obsessed with me on Facebook include a guy friend, two coworkers (Catherine and Emily — thanks gals), a guy I hooked up with years and years ago, and a random friend who I never talk to. That is depressing. Catherine’s five, on the other hand, is made up of three dudes she’s hooked up with, a guy we bowled against, and me. She is so pimp.
UPDATE: This little trick is no longer working. A Facebook insider told Gawker that the canned response from FB about this is: “The five friends that you see below the search box are populated based on people whom we think you’d be most interested in. Taking into account various factors, we attempt to make an educated guess as to who it is you’re looking for when you start typing a name in the search box. Please note that this information is only visible to you and will not be shared with your friends. We hope that this feature is helpful and we appreciate your feedback. Let me know if you have further questions.” Sorry, I call B.S. Why on earth would they conclude that this random chick I never talk to would be someone I’m most interested in? Keep reading »
According to our own Nookie Know-It-All as much as 75% of women cannot orgasms during intercourse, with 12% being unable to come, like, EVER. But it always amazes me that despite these statistics — which, I admit, do vary in number — men still seem to think they have no trouble getting ladies off in the sack. So, in honor of National Orgasm Month, I decided to poll the guys on my IM about how often they think they complete the deed and then was prepared to present them with the cold hard facts. But it turns out, they don’t really seem to be living in a dream world after all. Maybe they just feel so comfy with me (and The Frisky) that they don’t feel the need to pretend. Their responses, after the jump. Keep reading »
The Gap has joined forces with the venerable Whitney Museum to design a line of t-shirts celebrating the Whitney Biennial. The t-shirt above is not from that collection — it’s from Uniqlo, a Japanese chain that’s similar to The Gap. See, the Gap t-shirts are retailing for $28, but Uniqlo’s line of T’s with influential artists is only $15.50 and, we think, so much cuter. [Uniqlo.com] Keep reading »
Remember Craig David? He was that hot, suave soul singer from the U.K. who had a huge hit in 2000 with the song “7 Days”. He hasn’t been big in the U.S. since, but his star has continued to rise in his native country. His newest record, Trust Me, which critics are seriously buzzing about, came out in American on May 6 and the single off of it, “Hot Stuff (Let’s Dance)”, was a Top Ten single in the U.K. We think it’s time for Craig to make a comeback in the good ol’ U.S. And who better than Craig to give us a list of his favorite booty jams — we’ve certainly used his in the bedroom. Playlist, after the jump! Keep reading »
We just got a press release in the mail for a new line of denim called “Freedom Of Choice”, which we initially thought was named after the right afforded by Roe V. Wade. Not so! According to the designer, Nathan Menashe (of course, a man), Freedom of Choice jeans are for women who “need a pair of jeans that they can wear in the workplace and then go out in afterwards. They need all this plus that special detail that will make their jeans stand out from the rest of the pack.” Get it? Women need the freedom to choose jeans that they can wear in a board meeting AND when they’re out getting smashed with their friends. Take that, Roe V. Wade! Keep reading »
I think we all know by now that The Hills is a semi-scripted reality TV show. Yes, the people are real. Yes, the cameras follow them through the course of their real life. But MTV also creates a storyline and manipulates the real life goings on to meet their storyline’s needs. This season, the story centered around “feminist hero” Heidi, as she took time away from her douchebag boyfriend Spencer so she could focus on herself and her career. On last night’s season finale, MTV basically told the viewers that Heidi had a decision to make between two very different choices — focus solely on her career as a event planner for Brent Bolthouse Productions in Las Vegas or go home with Spencer without even giving her boss notice. Guess which she chose?
